    My family of husband and 18, 15,and 12 year old kids loved the hotel. Fab location, great hotel facilites, the best spa I have ever been in I now feel so relaxed after a week. Huge choice of food we went hb. Lots of sun beds, staff very friendly nothing a problem. Just what we wanted winter in the sun!!. We will go back.

    We loved everything

    Staff overworked with large waiting times for everything. Food was an average 3 star standard. Hotel in general was an average 3 star standard. Rooms were average 3 star standard. Very disapppointed in our stay.

    Very good

    The rooms were excellent, very large and clean, the staff were very nice,

    The swimming pool area is very small for the amount of guests, and the sun beds were impossible to get as people put there towels on them early morning, even though there were notices saying not to, also the location is very remote,

    Gran Castillo was an excellent hotel resort. It was rated as 5 Star, and we expected 4 star standard, but were impressed overall - very large rooms (TVs are small, need updated with larger screens and choice of channels though. And no internet in rooms unfortunately. Internet in reception was very slow, so this really needs updated), lots of good pools and different areas to lie on sunbeds. Buildings layout and landscaping was very well done - not the usual 6 storey box. Food choice and quality was really good - the best All Inclusive we have experienced (Italian restaurant in particular was great). Kids Club and daily activities such as archery very good. Evening entertainment was not great, but that's not high on our agenda. Staff always attentive and flexible. Coastal walk to Playa Blanca really beautiful.

    Bedroom TVs are small, need updated with larger screens and choice of channels such as SKY though. And no internet in rooms unfortunately. Internet in reception was very slow, so this really needs updated if they want to claim 5 or even 4 star. Wine and beer in the All-Incl were pretty average, but drinkable. Coffee, hot chocolate and soft drinks were good though. Evening entertainment was not great, but that's not high on our agenda.

    Fabulous

    the staff were extremely accommodating, the food was very good, and the room was lovely and spacious. sun beds around the heated pool could be a problem for some.

    The heated swimming pool was far too cold. this was our only disappointment and basically the reason that we chose this hotel was for the heated pool. Everything else was very good...

    - Location is close to the Papagayo beaches, easy to walk iso using the car - Spacious resort

    - It is not a 5 star resort, especially the dinner buffet lacks refinement - the heated pool was too cold for the children to play in - the influence of the english guests is too big - area around the main pool is crampy - dinner is in two shifts, it reduces your flexibility - you got a fixed diner table for the entire stay

    Although it is a 5 star category, the staff profile and attitude was very poor. I arrived at night and they did not have the confirmation of my bookig which was done via Booked.net. Despite their confirmation to me at check in that I can extend my check out till 2 pm, I called on the last day to reconfirm and was threatened by the reception manager that if I do not vacate the room by 12.15 noon they will charge me for full day - tone was also inappropriate for a 5star hotel category. This is the worst experience I had throughot my holidays.

    Staff attitude (At reception) and overall poor service

    The comfort at this hotel was excellent , the service was of a 5 star standard which is what I expected. Our room was very spacious and was spotlessly clean. It was cleaned every day with bed linen changed regularly. The buffet breakfast was superb with a great variety of food to choose from . The pool area was also very nice with plenty of sun beds to choose from with a climatised pool which was ideal since I stayed there in december . I stayed at this hotel with my 16 year old daughter and we both felt very safe there . The only downside I I have is the location / it was a bit further from playa planca than what I expected which meant a 10 euro taxi ride at night time however the cliff walk into playa blanca during the day was divine .

    The only thing I did not like about it was the location . It was too isolated for me as we did not have a car and also we were a bit disappointed with the nearest beach to it the location of the beach was excellent however I would not call it a beach and for review reasons I think ye should explain this clearly .

    Hotel is perfect. Convinient underground parking without additional fee. Hotel is rather quiet. Even animation is not disturbing. They even presented me a bootle of champagne having known about my birthday. They gave us 5 days of amazing weekend. Separate mention is breakfast- this is something to be taken for sure.

    You have to take car to reach beaches, but this is for all Playa Blanca's good hotels. The only minus is Internet in lobby only which look strange for claimed 5 star hotel. And somehow Internet worked for laptops but did not for iPads. Second thing to be improved is bar. Cocktails are very standard only good to get drunk and nothing else. Despite of written before the hotel is very very good and could be recommended.

    Had short stay and were upgraded to junior suites ,both with wonderful sea views and one with large roof terrace. Had dietary requirements , and these were met without any problem. Food was good and had plenty to choose from and drinks were well known brands. Children liked being able to help themselves to drinks from dispenser, again this meant you did not have to queue. Staff were efficient and friendly. Pools were clean and inviting.Public areas were clean and spacious. Would go again.

    The staff are lovely, cannot do enough to help. The pools were really nice. The food was lovely, the dessert table is a danger to your waist line. Good variety of food available. Really enjoyed the Chinese restaurant. Children enjoyed the kids club which gave us a couple of hours to enjoy the adult only pool which is very nice.

    Wifi was a bit rubbish. Only really worked in the main resturant or the lobby. I was a bit shocked that when we wanted a porter to take our cases down at 7:30 we were told no one available to 8am. I thought that was poor service for a five star hotel. Areas of the hotel are a little tired and could do with updating but it didn't effect our time there but as a five star you expect better.
